I pinched a cover line from Vogue’s January issue for the title of this post because it sums up my thoughts on dressing in 2013 precisely. It’s time for a change (I also just really like the cover).
Last week I posted on building an outfit around one sensational piece, and the Saint Laurent look on Gwen Stefani is a perfect example of this new approach to dressing, especially for evening.
We will be home with friends and family to ring in the new year. Last year’s (too literal) pajama trend as hostess-wear was not my thing, but fun, not-too-serious, party-ready pants are on my radar this holiday season. Instead of the jacket as the focal point, a metallic or lace pant will take center stage. Paired with one of my favorite (old and well-loved) cashmere sweaters, flats, and the Larkspur & Hawk earrings my husband gave me for Christmas, this will be my look when I welcome my guests on New Year’s Eve.
